Coram Boy by Jamila Gavin

Year 7 Literary Canon - Book 2

Coram Boy is an amazing story about a man who takes babies from their helpless mothers for money and power. The mothers think their children are being taken to Coram Hospital in London however, this is not the case. As someone who likes History, it was great to learn about the treatment of children in the eighteenth century. Mish was an interesting character to get to know, he is very kind and generous but has lots of personal challenges. There are lots of characters to get to know in this book. My favourite part of the book is when Aaron and Alexander are reunited as father and son. I would not have picked this book up in the library but I am really glad I have had the opportunity to read it.

4* review.
